Description

complex & elegant




A bouquet of warm spices and banana aromas welcomes you. This full-bodied Cape blend with complexity of blackberry and meaty characters on the palate leaves a long finish of fruit and spices to lingers on the palate.

Figurehead - (the figurine on the bowsprit of old sailing ships mostly a female or mermaid) a Cape Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Pinotage. [Br]Appearance: Clear ruby colour. Wine Style: Dry. Meaty and Muscular, Firm-fleshed with soft sweet centre threaded through with ripe tannins and warm spice sprinkle. Already delicious.THE HARVEST: All grapes were hand picked and sorted twice before a pure yeast culture was inoculated. IN THE CELLAR: The juice was pumped over the skins 3-5 times per day for 5 days. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was drained of the primary lees and transferred to a resting tank. Malolactic fermentation and a brief settling period preceded the wine to a combination of 225 litre barrels of French oak types. The wine spent between 12- 14 months is barrel before bottling and labelling.

Reifer Wein

Er bekommt ihn - den Platz in meinem Weinkeller

Eure Empfehlung dieses südafrikanischen Raka hat mich neugierig gemacht und ich habe eine Flasche mitbestellt. Und in der Tat, der ist gut. Eine warme Aromatik, kräftige Aromen, ein voller Körper, toll.

Eine echte Entdeckung!

Bin über eine Empfehlung eines Freundes auf den Wein gekommen. Der Figurehead ist eine überzeugende Bordeaux-Blend: Cassisnoten und Rumtopf in der Nase, reife Beeren am Gaumen, mürbes Tannine, auch der Alkohol ist perfekt eingebunden - absolut den Preis wert! Ist auf dem Punkt, kann aber sicher auch noch 2,3 Jahre liegen.
